The Trawlerman by William Shaw

The stunning fourth book in the DS Alexandra Cupidi Investigations series from one of crime fiction’s finest writers.


A DOUBLE MURDER
The naked corpses of Aylmer and Mary Younis are discovered in their home.  The only clues are a note written in blood and an eerie report of two spectral figures departing the crime scene.  Officer Jill Ferriter is charged with investigating the murders while her colleague Alex Cupidi is on leave, recovering from post-traumatic stress.

AN ELABORATE SCAM
The dead couple had made investments in a green reforestry scheme in Guatemala, resulting in the loss of all their savings.  What is more disturbing is that Cupidi and Ferriter’s disgraced former colleague and friend Bill South is also on the list of investors and the Younis’s were not the only losers.

AN UNLIKELY KILLER
Despite being in counselling and receiving official warnings to stay away from police work Cupidi finds herself dragged into the case and begins to trawl among the secrets and lies that are held in the fishing community of Folkestone.  Desperate to exonerate South she finds herself murderously compromised when personal relationships cloud her judgement.

Pacey, intense and riddled with surprising twists, The Trawlerman shows that deceit can be found in the most unlikely places.  The brooding waters of the Kent coastline offer an ominous backdrop for this lively page-turner of corruption, mental health and the complexities of human connection.

Peer & Press Reviews

The Trawlerman is an excellent, totally absorbing crime novel which can only augment the reputations of William Shaw.

Shotsmag

Shaw’s novels combine a strong central character with an atmospheric setting and original plots.

Sunday Times

[A] terrifically atmospheric thriller mixing a twisting plot with a considered meditation on the lasting effects of close contact with violence.
